State 23 road projects finished

Just in time to go over the river and through the woods for Thanksgiving, road work on State 23 in Sheboygan County is finished, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation regional office in Green Bay.

Crews worked through the summer and fall reconstructing four intersections along State 23 – at County O, County E, Pleasant View Road and County M.

At the three intersections north of the city of Plymouth (County O, County E and Pleasant View Road), work consisted of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating the intersections. Left turn lanes were constructed in the median of State 23 at each of these locations. These turn lanes restrict the traffic that will be able to cross State 23.

Traffic approaching from the north or south (attempting to cross State 23) is only allowed to make a right hand turn movement onto State 23.

At the County M intersection in the town of Sheboygan Falls, work consisted of creating safety enhancements and rehabilitating the intersection.

County M was constructed into a J-turn intersection. Left hand turn lanes were constructed in the medians at this location. These turn lanes restrict the traffic that will be able to cross State 23. Traffic approaching from the north or south (attempting to cross State 23) is only allowed to make a right hand turn movement onto State 23.

Pump topper signs aim at OWI

To help ensure that deer hunters make it home safely this year, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the Wisconsin Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association (WPMCA) are teaming up to install attention-getting gas pump toppers at stations around the state warning hunters and others of the dangers of drunken driving.

Because convenience store business spikes during deer-hunting season, DOT is supplying more than 150 gas pump toppers to participating convenience stores through the WPMCA. The stores are donating gas pump topper space for the messages.

“WPMCA is proud to partner with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation on promoting safe driving on the state’s highways during this busy time of year,” said Ken Kearns, chairman of the Wisconsin Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association, in a press release announcing the program. “Since many motorists stop at WPMCA member stores for gas or supplies, it just made sense to raise awareness of the dangers of drunken driving and help reduce traffic deaths in Wisconsin.”

“Instead of risking a drunken driving arrest and possibly a serious or fatal crash, we urge everyone to designate before they celebrate during deer hunting season and throughout the year,” says David Pabst, director of the WisDOT Bureau of Transportation Safety., in a press release. “Our Zero In Wisconsin program’s Drive Sober mobile app can help you designate a sober driver. This mobile app can be downloaded for free by visiting www.ZeroInWisconsin.gov.”

In addition to downloading the Drive Sober app, here are commonsense suggestions to prevent drunken driving:

· If you’re feeling buzzed, you probably are over the 0.08 (alcohol concentration) limit and should not drive.

· Don’t allow friends to drive drunk no matter how much they protest.

· If you see a drunken driver on the road, call 911 and provide as much information as you can.

DMV centers closed Thursday, Friday

The DMV would like to remind all customers that many services such as license plate registration renewal and vehicle titling do not require a trip to a customer service center and can be handled online, through the mail or by other third-party service providers such as some police stations, grocery stores and financial institutions around the state.
